Welcome to our Digital Humanities Research Guide. This guide is intended to grow and evolve as new resources and research tools become available so as to support actively the ongoing discovery and creation of knowledge by USC faculty and students who are engaged in the digital humanities research and education at USC (See, as one example: the Digital Humanities Program at USC).
I'll be adding new content regularly so please visit often: Your feedback, comments, and suggestions are welcomed. Please send them to me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
For companion guides to this guide, see:
E-books A resource for information about E-books at USC Libraries, and beyond.
Fair Use: Using Images in Papers, Theses, and Dissertations This guide offers basic information on using images in theses/dissertations. Reasonable use of images and media in teaching, course papers, and graduate theses/dissertations is generally covered by fair use.
Google Scholar Tips This is a guide on how to use Google Scholar effectively and search multiple library e-resources at once.
Graduate Student Research Guide This guide supplements the "Digital Grad Student: Multimedia Tools for Research and Teaching" workshop hosted by the Graduate Student Government Academic Affairs Committee and the USC Libraries in Fall 2012.
Organizing Research for Arts and Humanities Papers and Theses The purpose of this guide is to provide you with information on some elements that go into researching and writing arts and humanities papers and theses. Because there is no unified structure to research and methodology in the arts and in the humanities, this guide provides general norms and suggestions, but is not comprehensive.
